8&9 is a conscious, independent clothing company designed with a diverse perspective inspired by passion and experience — street shit, hip-hop, skating, sneakers, modern politics and even pop culture.
Our friend and loyal contributor, Rod Deal, has been selected to showcase his artwork as The Vagabond’s ‘Artist of the Month’ for the December Art Basel Edition. The opening reception will be held on Saturday, December 8th and will feature the musical stylings of French Express.
In terms of party vibes, this should be one of the hottest openings of the week and knowing Rod Deal’s keen eye, the artwork will embody its musical essence.

Primary Projects’ never disappoints and always brings it during Basel with nothing short of memorable installations and intelligent exhibits. This year, they have not one but three exhibitions going on around town – Asifs Guns, a pop-up solo exhibit by Asif Faroq in Wynwood, Parker Soho, an installation by Kenton Parker across the bridge at SoHo Beach House, and RANEYTOWN by Rebeca Raney at their project space in the Design District.
From humble beginnings, street art found its place in the contemporary art world and has made itself right at home in our Magic-al City.

Most art openings and cultural events end right when you start getting your groove on — sad but true.
This weekend, The Vagabond and Tropicult are joining forces with local artist and merchants to keep the art of drinking alive and radiating on the dance floor.
